Not only is this one of the most beautiful Florida State Parks (and we have been traveling them for 4 years now) when you are able to get a site during the month of December you are treated to the most spectacular Christmas lights! And, there is a Santa's village where you can meet and mingle with other visitors while... More

This is our second time camping here. In December the park is decorated for Christmas. They do a really great job with the lights. It is set up for all ages. The park is kept really clean. I was very impressed with the campground. The bathhouses are spotless.

This park is on the beautiful Suwannee river. Excellent campground. The carillon tower is awesome, as are the museum, craft village, and gift shop. Hiking and biking on miles of trails. Home of many events, including the annual Florida Folk Festival in May and the Festival of Lights with millions of lights in December. I go there often, am never... More

Very beautiful State Park. Camping opportunities from primitive to trailer and tent sites with electric and water to 2bed/1 bath cabins with ac and heat. Great place for hiking, biking, and walking. There are museums in the park highlighting the life of Steven Foster. Very informative and interesting! There is a little country store that offers coffee, snacks, and souvenirs.... More

This is a beautiful park with wonderful campsites. The sites are big and roomy. There is electricity and water, although no sewer hook-up, but a dump site is available. The park has a museum dedicated to Stephen Foster, the father of American folk music. There is a bell tower that chimes songs during the day. A craft village and gift... More

Wow! What a hidden gem! We stayed in a cabin at the Stephen Foster Cultural Center Stae Park in Northern Florida on our way to and from a trip back to Ohio for a family wedding. We checked in at the front gate and then drove through the lovely grounds to the rental cabins. We were shocked to see how... More

We found Stephen Foster State Park to be a lovely place to visit and to camp. We had a spacious campsite and the bathhouses are well maintained. The whole park is scenic located on the Swanee River covered in natural vegetation. Lots of nice picnic pavilions and play areas. We enjoyed hearing the chimes playing Stephen Foster songs. Also, be... More

I have visited this property several times over my life. My parents took me here when I was a child. I took my kids here when the were young teens and my wife and I spent two nights here on a recent trip to the area. The Carillon tower is a delight. The museum hasn't changed since I first visited...

I've been coming here since I was a little girl. If you haven't been in years, you're going to be in for a big surprise. There are still the amazing hand made diaromas of Stephen Foster's most popular song, along with the carillion tower. But in recent years, a pioneer village has been built. Each cabin is home to a...
